Abstract

CASTRO ANGULO, Ildefonso; TIRADO MUNOZ, Omar  and  MANJARREZ PABA, Ganiveth. NOISE PRESSURE LEVELS IN THE SECOND SECTION OF TRANSCARIBE CARTAGENA, 2007. Rev. ing. univ. Medellin [online]. 2007, vol.6, n.11, pp.43-52. ISSN 1692-3324.

This research project which intends to determine the levels of noise in the second section of Transcaribe was developed in May and June, 2007, by Tecnológico Comfenalco University Foundation Environmental Research Group (GIA). The development of Transcaribe system is a proposal to improve urban mobility in Cartagena by means of a high speed transportation system using high occupation buses with the aim of improving citizens' life quality and city productivity as well. This mass transportation system project hopes to reduce acoustic levels. Through this research a weekly acoustic analysis which reflects the phenomenon of noise pollution in Cartagena de Indias, especially in the zone closed to Pedro de Heredia Avenue, an important avenue in the city was carried out. The study allows concluding that the zone where the second section of TransCaribe will be constructed, does not comply with norms against noise pollution at specific hours of the day because its noise levels are beyond the limits defined by the legislation (80 db).

Keywords : Environmental noise; acoustic pollution; sound; transCaribe.
